An electrical engineer, Tsatsoulis became UNT’s engineering dean in 2008 following a 20-year career at the University of Kansas. At KU, he served as chair of electrical engineering and computer science from 2004 to 2008 and director of the Intelligent Systems and Information Management Laboratory from 1997 to 2003.

Tsatsoulis’ research focuses on multi-agent systems, case-based reasoning, machine learning and intelligent image analysis. He is the author of 25 journal articles and 79 published conference and workshop papers and is co-editor of the textbook Analysis of SAR Data of the Polar Oceans (Springer Verlag, 1998). He holds one U.S. patent for an automated data entry system.

Tsatsoulis holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Purdue University in Lafayette, Ind.
